By Alexander Barthet

If you’re working for a public entity which is holding a large retainage, be aware that at 50 percent completion “… a public entity must reduce to 5 percent the amount of retainage withheld from each subsequent progress payment made to the contractor.” Generally under construction contract law, the term “50-percent completion” means the point at which the public entity has expended 50 percent of the total cost of the construction services purchased as identified in the contract, together with all costs associated with any existing change orders and other additions or modifications to the contract.
